(April 28) – A bill by Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, to ensure ‘Mile High’ remains a part of Broncos Stadium passed the House Business Affairs & Labor Committee on an 11-2 vote this afternoon.
“The ‘Mile High’ name is synonymous with Denver,” said Rep. Pabon. “We should put that name and legacy in statute so that no matter who sells or buys the leasing rights, the name ‘Mile High’ always sits atop the stadium.”
Under current law, the board may sell or lease the name of the football stadium. This bill requires that any agreement to name the stadium include the phrase “Mile High.”
The vote sends the bill to the House floor.
